Should Boys and girls be able to kiss in school

To express affection toward anther person is a part of free speech. Kissing ones boyfriend or girlfriend (so long as they are OK about being kissed) is not infringing on the rights or well-being of another person. Therefore, I would contend that boys and girls should be free to kiss in school. That said, I also believe that kids should be motivated to focus on learning and not playing around in school. But that belief still does not entitle me to go throwing a bucket of cold water over a canoodling couple.

To me students should have their own free time to hang out with their boyfriend or girlfriend and build a relationship.

I don't think that students should be provided so much freedom that they cross their limits. Teenage is the age of fantasies, and of course we should be careful for it. And it is not the right age for building any relationship.

As long as they are keeping it appropriate, there is no reason why they shouldn't be allowed to. I find it a bit rude that the question says "boys and girls", though. What about the people who are not straight? They shouldn't have different rules. You should be allowed to kiss who you want as long as they're okay with it. Really, kissing doesn't hurt anyone. I understand not allowing it in elementary school, but past that, everyone has seen kissing before, and it's a bit ridiculous to waste time banning it in schools. Would you rather have people going around kissing, or bullying? It doesn't distract from class if someone gives their boyfriend/girlfriend a quick kiss between classes, and they'd likely be doing it anyway outside of school.

I don't see a problem with kissing in between classes or during lunch. Obviously they shouldn't be kissing during class though. It's a good way to learn that there is a time and place for everything. A little kissing in between classes iS not dangerous.

Side: Heck yes, this is right

A little bit would be fine, but you know there would be some clingy couples wanting to "show off" how serious their relationships are in school. It sounds stupid, but their are plenty of students out there (especially freshmen).

I think rules should be put in place just to make the couples have to be discrete.

Boys and girls can kiss in school. Sometimes kissing is not a bad things. We kiss to show our friendliness, kindness and love to our partner and to the public. But people defended it because it's a private activities which should not be doing in public.

We don't necessary to kiss with who we love like boyfriend or girlfriend only. We can kiss to our friends or teacher if you want.

Kissing also a cultural activities. In western culture kissing is normal. We kiss to show our friendliness to public. We didn't think perverted but it a cultural activities we don't need to be shy about it.

I didn't trust teenagers to be responsible when I was in highschool myself, and I don't trust them much now either.

If they want to express their affections, they can do it when their parents are responsible for them, not when the school is.

Since school is based simply on obtaining education and you do want kissing in school because it does not contribute. Then socializing, making friends, and any form of sarcasm at all times should be against the rules because of it lacks development of education.

I went to a high school with a very permissive policy about this. Drivers-by would complain about having to see fifteen-year-olds making out on the front lawns. Public schools are institutions of societal improvement: distasteful behavior should be discouraged.

Normal, minimal displays of affection between peers of a similar age is "distasteful behavior?" I'd understand if they were fucking one another on the front steps, but kissing is a socially acceptable way for people to display their affection for one another in public. I don't think twice if I see a couple kiss one another in the supermarket. I would probably double-take if i saw a girl giving a blowie to her boyfriend in the supermarket; nobody needs to see some random dudes dick right next to a bunch of food they want to buy. If you really have a severe problem with seeing people kiss, don't stare at people kissing; it's not disgusting or revealing or vulgar or obscene, and if you dislike it I can only assume it is for prudish reasons.

What's the difference? I'm serious. What is the defining feature of public fornication that makes it less permissible than public foreplay besides degree?

kissing is a socially acceptable way for people to display their affection for one another in public.

If that's the case in your community, it shouldn't be. Western society has gotten progressively more accepting of vulgarity ever since a mob of post-modernists decided we were too "repressed." We'll embrace anything if we're told it'll help us shed our Judeo-Christian heritage. American culture has entered its rebellious adolescence.

if you dislike it I can only assume it is for prudish reasons.

This is meaningless. I could just as easily say "If you approve of it, I can only assume it's for promiscuous reasons." What's objectionable about prudishness (especially when compared to the opposite extreme)?

Uh, I think not. We were raised in our school not to be allowed to do that. We got used to it. Besides, it is not bad to do that.. but then, you also have to think if you are trying to respect yourself by doing it in front of other people. It's up to the people if they'd do it.. Because I think, no one can stop them anyway

Side: No, I don't think so

Why should there be?

Side: No, I don't think so

Definitely not:

1) I hate seeing people kiss in public. Brief pecks don't bother me usually (although it did in schol), but making out does. I know I'm not alone.

2) It is not conducive to learning. School's must maintain and educational environment and kissing and other signs of affection work against this. I'm not saying kids should have no freedom, but there is obviously a limit.

3) It gives teachers too much personal information about their students and they will involuntarily have to witness their students' promiscuity.

4) Students who do not do skanky things will be either pressured into conforming to this bad behavior or they will feel insecure.

Mononucleosis.

"Mono can be spread through contact with saliva, mucus from the nose and throat, and sometimes tears. Because the virus can be spread through kissing, it has earned the nickname the "kissing disease." If you have mono, you can avoid passing the virus to others by not kissing anyone and by not sharing things like drinking glasses, eating utensils, or toothbrushes." Web MD

School is about learning.

I think there needs to be more restrictions of distracting things that take place during school time.

Side: No, I don't think so

Kids who are kissing in school are learning... they're learning both kissing and how to interact with the opposite sex... arguably they are learning much more important life lessons than those they learn in class, which is mainly how to jump through hoops and how to brown-nose your superiors.

And there are already far too many restrictions on distracting things. School is nothing like the real world. School is supposed to prepare you for the real world. The real world is full of distractions. Therefore part of the thing school has to prepare you for is being able to deal with an abundance of distractions while still getting your shit done. This cannot be accomplished by putting blanket ban on anything that might distract a student in school. Quite the opposite; banning distractions would be quite harmful to the students because then when they end up in the real world with distractions left, right, and center, they won't know how the fuck to conduct themselves and get distracted and side tracked at every turn.

Side: Heck yes, this is right

I see your point, from a logical standpoint, school's should include some real world distractions.

Plus kissing is really only distracting to the people who wouldn't be paying attention in the first place.

They have rights outside of school, there's no reason to lose them when they enter.
